Chapter 1486: The Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda’s Third Level
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
‘Blood Devil Territory? So this is the True Energy Consolidated Territory’s power?’ Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed, and his expression turned gloomy when he heard the black-robed man’s words. ‘Will I, Duan Ling Tian, really die here today? I’m unwilling! I’m unwilling!’
He was unwilling!
He had yet to see his two children who were yet to be born.
He had yet to find his parents.
He had yet to take revenge back on earth.
There were just too many things he had yet to achieve.
As the giants surrounded Duan Ling Tian faded away and reverted to black mist in the bloody red aura, the black-robed man arrived before him in just a blink of an eye. There was an eerie light shining in the eyes under the black robe.
Duan Ling Tian noticed the eyes did not look like they belonged to a human.
“Boy, it’s over now,” the black-robed man said calmly. The gigantic scythe above his head and the skinny Wild Beast were charging in Duan Ling Tian’s direction. Their speed was not very fast as though they were giving Duan Ling Tian a chance to catch his breath.
This was the black-robed man’s habit when he was killing.
He did not like to immediately end his opponents’ lives when he killed. He liked to see their despair and struggle before they died. To him, it was an indulgence, a spiritual indulgence.
However, it was destined that Duan Ling Tian would disappoint him.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian lifted his head suddenly and looked at the black-robed man. The gloominess on his face and the hint of unwillingness in his eyes had disappeared. He had a strange smile on his face. “You… are a Devil Cultivator?”
“Boy, you’re not too shabby. You even manage to tell I am a Devil Cultivator just from my Blood Devil Territory.” Although he did not like the strange smile on Duan Ling Tian’s face, the black-robed man scoffed arrogantly. “Even in the Moon Illumination Sect, apart from the few Saint Stage powerhouses, only people at the Imminent Saint Stage are able to defeat me!”
“You should be proud that you’ll die in my hands.” The black-robed man smiled coldly.
“We don’t know who will die yet.” Duan Ling Tian grinned as his eyes gleamed. Subsequently, he lifted his arm and took out a tablet with a chipped corner before the black-robed man managed to react.
Black mist lingered around the tablet as it emitted a terrifying aura.
The black-robed man had an ominous feeling when he saw the tablet. “Boy, what’s that?”
“As a Devil Cultivator on Dao Martial Saint Land… I think you should know this Super Saint Weapon in the Ten Great Saint Weapons Ranking that’s able to control Devil Cultivators, right?” The smile on Duan Ling Tian was charming. The despair he felt previously had completely vanished.
“Ten Great Saint Weapons Ranking? A Super Saint Weapon that can control Devil Cultivators?” The black-robed man was stunned when he heard Duan Ling Tian’s words. He seemed to have thought of something as he jumped. His expression changed drastically. “Seal…”
“That’s right! It’s the Devilseal Tablet!” Duan Ling Tian said loudly, shocking the black-robed man whose body had begun to tremble. When the man was still at a loss, Duan Ling Tian lifted the tablet and tossed it at the black-robed man.
There was no martial art technique in that toss, it was purely a throw.
However, the toss alone was like a voodoo talisman to the black-robed man.
The tablet with a chipped corner was one of the Super Saint Weapons in the Dao Martial Saint Land’s Ten Great Saint Weapons Ranking. The black ray around the tablet expanded when it was tossed out, and its speed increased in a frenzy.
Just when the black-robed man regained his senses, the Devilseal Tablet smashed hard against his body.
As a loud noise sounded, the black-robed man’s body shook, and he was thrown out.
At this very second, the black-robed man’s eyes that were initially shining with an eerie light turned dark suddenly, blending in with the black robe that covered his entire body.
At this time, the black-robed man had already lost his breath.
His soul had been absorbed and suppressed by the Devilseal Tablet.
Meanwhile, the gigantic scythe and the skinny Wild Beast the black-robed man consolidated from his True Energy had vanished. It was like they were never there at all.
On the other hand, the Blood Devil Territory the black-robed man performed using his True Energy Consolidated Territory technique that covered a hundred-meter radius disappeared as well.
The Devilseal Tablet returned to Duan Ling Tian’s hands after the black-robed man was killed.
“That’s a close call… Fortunately, he’s a Devil Cultivator. Otherwise, I would’ve died today!” Duan Ling Tian said, still shaken. He took a deep breath to calm his chaotic emotion.
The Devilseal Tablet was only effective against Devil Cultivators. With Duan Ling Tian’s cultivation base at the Mortal Shedding Stage, he could activate the Devilseal Tablet and easily suppress Devil Cultivators as long as they were not at the Saint Stage.
“He probably did not expect the boy he didn’t take seriously possesses the Devilseal Tablet that can make all Devil Cultivators in the Dao Martial Saint Land tremble,” Duan Ling Tian muttered under his breath as he flew and landed next to the black-robed man’s body.
At the same time, he flipped open the black robe on the man’s body, revealing his face.
Although Duan Ling Tian had lived two lives and was toughened because of that, he could not help but frown when he saw the black-robed man’s face.
His face was putrid. One could not tell he was human at all. If it was someone else, they might have thrown up the food they ate the night before when they saw the black-robed man’s appearance.
Duan Ling Tian found the black-robed man’s Spatial Ring and took it after searching his body. Since the black-robed man had died, the Spatial Ring had become ownerless.
After performing Blood Ownership Claim, Duan Ling Tian’s jaw dropped in shock when he looked into it. “So this is what a powerhouse at the peak of the Paramount Saint Rudiment Stage has. The fortune he owned is amazing… I’m guessing there are a million Saint Stones that are at the sixth grade?”
With just a glance, Duan Ling Tian could tell there were up to a million sixth grade Saint Stones in that mountainous pile.
Apart from sixth grade Saint Stones, there were many seventh grade Saint Stones too. Naturally, the number was not as jaw-dropping as the sixth grade Saint Stones.
There were more higher grade Saint Stones and fewer lower grade Saint Stones.
It seemed a little strange, but it was undoubtedly a great gain for Duan Ling Tian.
“I suppose ordinary people at the peak of the Paramount Saint Rudiment Stage won’t have such a ridiculous amount of fortune… The reason why this fellow was so rich must have something to do with him being an assassin.” Duan Ling Tian was certain of this.
When he was a mercenary in his past life, the business he had conducted was similar wherein he was also hired to kill. Naturally, he had his own rules. The target had to be someone who deserved to die.
No matter what, he was trained by the Hua’s standard special force. He had his bottom line.
Apart from the over a million sixth grade Saint Stones and hundreds of thousands of seventh grade Saint Stones, there were many other things in the black-robed man’s Spatial Ring. There were Saint Weapons inscribed with Saint Inscriptions and a variety of Dao Talismans.
“Three-Star Divine Strider Talismans and Three-Star Golden Energy Talismans… He has so many?”
“And… Is this the Three-Star offensive Dao Talisman?”
After looking through the Dao Talismans in the Spatial Ring for a while, Duan Ling Tian was surprised to find Three-Star offensive Dao Talismans that even Moon Illumination Sect did not have.
When the Three-Star offensive Dao Talisman was activated, its attacks were on par with powerhouses at the Paramount Saint Rudiment Stage.
At this moment, Duan Ling Tian’s breath could not help but quicken.
“I can’t believe there are two Three-Star offensive Dao Talismans here… These are good stuff.” Although the number of Three-Star offensive Dao Talismans was not as many as Three-Star Divine Strider Talismans and Three-Star Golden Energy Talismans, Duan Ling Tian was still elated to obtain two Three-Star offensive Dao Talismans.
One must know he had slightly regretted using his Three-Star Divine Strider Talismans and Three-Star Golden Energy Talismans when he realized the black-robed man was a Devil Cultivator.
After all, the Three-Star Divine Strider Talismans and Three-Star Golden Energy Talismans were useless when used against the black-robed man.
Naturally, the most important thing was the black-robed man was a Devil Cultivator.
He did not have to do much at all to deal with Devil Cultivators below the Saint Stage. All he needed to do was to bring out the Devilseal Tablet.
The Devilseal Tablet’s force alone was enough to kill the black-robed man.
However, his regret disappeared when he discovered the black-robed man left behind so many Three-Star Divine Strider Talismans and Three-Star Golden Energy Talismans. Not only did he get back what he had wasted, but he had even gained quite a lot of extra items.
Most importantly, he obtained two Three-Star offensive Dao Talismans.
There were even more Two Star Dao Talismans. However, there was no One Star Dao Talisman.
“Based on his ability, he definitely looked down on One Star Dao Talismans.” Duan Ling Tian figured it out easily.
Judging by the black-robed man’s words, it was apparent he was at the peak of the Paramount Saint Rudiment Stage. Otherwise, he would not boast that nobody in Moon Illumination Sect could defeat him apart from the few Saint Stage and Imminent Saint Stage powerhouses.
Duan Ling Tian continued to look through the pile of Saint Weapons in the black-robed man’s Spatial Ring when he was done looking at the Dao Talismans.
The best Saint Weapon was only inscribed with two Three-Star Saint Inscriptions.
Duan Ling Tian was not bothered with these Saint Weapons.
What a joke!
His Sun Shooting Bow was inscribed with three Three-Star Saint Inscriptions. The pile of Saint Weapons in the black-robed man’s Spatial Ring could not even compare to it.
In terms of value, all the Saint Weapons in the black-robed man’s Spatial Ring could not even measure up to his Sun Shooting Bow.
‘Eh? There are quite many materials… I wonder if there’s anything that I can use to restore the third level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda among these materials,’ Duan Ling Tian thought to himself when he saw the materials in the black-robed man’s Spatial Ring.
He was so determined to restore the third level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda to the point that it seemed like he was possessed. This was because the third level was important to him. He even thought about restoring the third level when he was sleeping.
“Elder Huo.” Duan Ling Tian contacted Elder Huo in the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda immediately. At the same time, he poured out every single item in the black-robed man’s Spatial Ring and spread them out for Elder Huo to look at.
Elder Huo did not say a thing even after he looked at them for a while.
Eventually, Duan Ling Tian could not help but ask impatiently, “Elder Huo, are there any materials that we can use?”
“You’re in great luck! There are a few materials that we can use… These materials are enough to restore the remaining parts of the third level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda,” Elder Huo said.
Duan Ling Tian was momentarily stunned when he heard Elder Huo’s words. He felt as though he was dreaming.
When he regained his senses, his eyes were shining with excitement. “That’s great! We can finally completely restore the third level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda… This means the next time I go into closed-door cultivation, I’ll be able to go directly up to the third level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda!”
